I know, I know, I am very late releasing Door Into Light. But! It was unavoidable.
The cover got complicated because several months ago, the cover artist was about to send me first sketch and then she suddenly fell seriously ill. Then she was in a hospital. Then she was home. I don’t know her real name, only the name she went by as an artist, and when she stopped answering messages or emails, I had no way to determine whether she might be very sick indeed, or possibly even have passed away.
So after a while, I looked around and found a different cover artist. This is the cover she’s done for me. I hope you all like it. It was fairly difficult as I had to say, Can you please match the ornate, scrolling font of the title from House of Shadows? See those dragons, can you be sure to put dragons like that somewhere on this cover? Music is important, can you put a harp or a wooden flute or panpipes somewhere?
I am embarrassed to note that I kept thinking of details to change and had to ask her to fiddle with the cover over and over, but here is final version.
